Weekend tidbits

This weekend sure went by quickly!

We had my FIL's birthday dinner at home on Friday night. Unfortunately Mr Curious had to stay late at work so he missed out. I managed to overcook all the T-bone steaks so even my one was well done (I usually go for medium-rare). Major fail ;-/

Saturday was a beautiful day in Sydney so had a picnic lunch at a local park. We had the St Malo mud cake for dessert.

What an exceptional cake!  It was rich and smooth but not at all heavy, and the chocolate used in the cake was top nosh.  I'm looking forward to trying other cakes from the shop.

After lunch I popped by Chatswood to get a few essentials (read nappies) and managed to lay my hands on the kit cosmetics makeup set.  I may do a review post in the next few days.

After we put TLG in bed, Mr Curious, my FIL, and BIL and I gathered around the dinner table for a game of Upwords.  Both sides of our families are fans of board games, and Upwords is a fun word-based game that I find more enjoyable than Scrabble.

This morning I made french toast with maple syrup. One word: yum.

After breakfast I headed to the Baby and Kids market at Lane Cove.  It's a good place to pick up some good quality pre-loved toys and books.  The purchase of the day was a fire truck with extendable ladder similar to the one below for a princely sum of $2, TLG was super-excited about "my fire truck".

And tonight I crossed off 2 things that were on my to-do list for way too long.

1. Finished Mr Curious' tax return.  We knew he had to pay so there was no incentive to do it any earlier.

2. Gave my makeup brushes a good clean with baby shampoo.  They were so dirty!  I must do it more often.

How was your weekend?


  1. I too had to pay tax. Just paid it today. Ouch.

    That cake looks amazing. I seriously need to go to that bakery!
